Murder by Magic (Detective Inspector Skelgill Investigates Book 5), by Bruce Beckham. (Still free?)

"What a great, entertaining read! Such wonderfully developed characters each with his/her own unique personality that set the DI Skelville series apart (and above) most other series in its genre. The descriptions of the Lake District locales are, dare I say, "magical " " -- Amazon Reviewer

A SPATE OF VICIOUS ATTACKS upon valuable Herdwick sheep, the sudden disappearance of a foreign hiker, and the unexplained drowning of a woodland hermit – a series of apparently unconnected events – draw Detective Inspector Daniel Skelgill to the white-knuckle passes and isolated dales of deepest Lakeland.

As straws in the wind begin to suggest there is sorcery afoot – and perhaps some connection to an equally sinister trade in human traffic – Skelgill and his team risk dire consequences as they strive to fathom the mystery, infiltrate the secretive ring and expose its evil perpetrators.

In the fifth Inspector Skelgill novel, the maverick British detective faces what is his greatest challenge yet, as he strives to overcome an error of judgement that could leave his career – and his life – in tatters.

Of Giants and Other Men, by Caspar Peek. (Still free?)

"The author does an excellent job of developing each character. The author’s descriptions of the brutality, horrors, and violence of war are very realistic and graphic. After reading this book I have a clearer understanding of Nicaragua; its history, culture, politics, and people. It is obvious to me that the author has done a great deal of research and knows a great deal about Nicaragua; its history and beauty. This is a well-written book and I recommend reading it." -- Amazon Reviewer

In 1930’s Nicaragua two cousins, Tomás and Fausto, grow up together in the shadow of a ruthless dictator who murdered Tomás’ father and sent his ashes home in an urn.

Swearing that he will avenge his father’s death, Tomás finds a friend in his cousin Fausto and the two boys become blood brothers, promising that they will always put one another first.

But events take an unexpected turn with the arrival of the alluring Ana, who has returned to the country from Europe. An attraction between Tomás and Ana begins to form, one which does not sit well with Fausto.

As the cousins grow into men, life takes them onto different paths: while Tomás becomes a doctor sworn to protect life, Fausto becomes a soldier who embraces his career with a passion that earns him the nickname “Lieutenant Knife.”

With their allegiance to each other being tested by as sickening war, and their love for the same woman, can Tomás and Fausto remain true to the vow they made when they were children? Or will war and revolution tear them apart?

“Of Giants and Other Men” is a masterful story of love, betrayal, honor and sacrifice, depicting the horror and beauty that lie at the core of the human heart.

In Too Deep: A New Zealand Enemies to Lovers Second Chances Romance (Due South Series Book 1), by Tracey Alvarez. (Still free?)

"There were so many twists and turns in this relationship - and plenty of other people to flesh out the story. I simply loved it. Loved the distinctive Kiwi style of speech which Tracey Alvarez has captured beautifully. Loved the setting on isolated Stewart Island. Loved the characters lurking in the background waiting for their own book. I really enjoyed spending time with Piper and West and have already read the whole book through twice. " -- Amazon Reviewer


Saying goodbye for the second time might just destroy them both...


She vowed never to return.
To save her brother from financial ruin, Piper Harland must do the one thing she swore she'd never do—return to the tiny island hometown where Ryan "West" Westlake crushed her heart. Piper is tough, resilient and a little wild—much like the remote and beautiful Stewart Island where she grew up. As a cop who's part of the elite New Zealand Police National Dive Squad, bringing the dead back to their families still doesn't stop the guilt she feels over her father's drowning death. Now nine years later she's obligated to return to a hostile community as the outsider, and forced to work with the man who was once her best friend and first lover.

She's a risk he can't take.
West is an Island man, through and through. As owner of the local pub, he lives and breathes the local community, and sure as hell can't imagine living anywhere else. But most of all he refuses to ever fall for a woman like his flighty mother. He lost Piper once to give her the chance to fulfil her dreams of becoming a cop. But now she's back for an unexpected six week visit to help her brother—his best mate. Maybe West wants her a little bit, maybe he can't resist the temptation to tease and touch her, but can he fall in love with such a flight risk?

IN TOO DEEP is the first story in Tracey Alvarez’s best-selling Due South books set against the stunning backdrop of Aotearoa, New Zealand. If you like heart-warming, sexy & seductive small-town romances with a touch of humor, you’ll love sharing the journey with these authentic men and women struggling to find their special someone.

"It’s official…I’m hooked on this series! I want to jump on a plane and fly to this island, because apparently they grow them big and HOT in New Zealand…men that is!!!" ~ Swept Away By Romance

"Perfection comes in many shapes and forms, and Ms Alvarez delivers in her contemporary voice and quirky character traits that make a distinctive difference between average and stellar storytelling." ~ InD’Tale Magazine

"Just as the must-read series of Donna Kauffman (The Bachelors of Blueberry Cove), Jill Shalvis (Lucky Harbor), Terri Osburn (Anchor Island), Marie Force (The McCarthys of Gansett Island), Sherryl Woods (Chesapeake Shores) have entranced me with their seaside settings and caring communities - so has Tracey Alvarez - and I'm adding her series to my must-read shelf too."~ Fab Fantasy Fiction

Abducted: Escape From Kraile (Abducted Series Book 1), by J. R. Cleveland. (Still free?)

"This is a really well written story. My 11 year old was excited to read this, and once he started he never stopped. After reading it myself I have to say I enjoyed it as well. The characters are easy to relate to, the story line is great and actually makes sense, it;s a sort of science fiction category story in my opinion. I have to recommend this to anyone with older children, they will really enjoy it." -- Amazon Reviewer

After discovering two aliens trying to milk a cow in his Grandfather's barn, fourteen year old Luke Summers is abducted. Scared out of his wits, he soon realizes that the aliens, Simon and Leonidas, don't mean him any harm… huge relief.

Instead, after injecting Luke with nano-translators so he can understand them, they tell him that his parents, both astronauts who were pronounced dead during a failed mission to Mars, are still alive... and they need his help to rescue them from an evil spider-alien dictator named Drac Moor.

There’s just one itsy bitsy catch. Luke will first need to be “reconditioned” so that he can withstand the harsh alien atmospheres that he’ll be subjected to. Oh… and it’s probably going to hurt a little.

Follow along as Luke stumbles through one disaster after another, in an attempt to pull off a daring prison break and free his parents before it’s too late.
